New powerful Nvidia GTX 1080 gaming laptops – South African pricing

Nvidia recently unveiled its GeForce GTX 1080, 1070, and 1060 GPUs for notebooks.

The GPUs feature Nvidia’s Pascal architecture, and promise “unprecedented performance, power efficiency, and VR capabilities” for notebooks.

“Notebook manufacturers are using the GPUs inside potent portable gaming devices as thin as 18mm, equipped with cutting-edge technologies to deliver astounding performance at 120Hz and 4K gaming,” said Nvidia.

Local retailers Wootware and Evetech have listed pricing for new notebooks featuring the GTX 10-series cards – including the top-of-the-line MSI GT83VR 6RF Titan SLI.
